So very sorry to hear of Steves passing. We had known each other since late 60s in Bloomington, Illinois. Just reconnected a couple years ago on FB. Prayers to the family.
He will be missed. He will be waiting when we all get to Heaven.

Steve was such a kind man. And he always made me laugh. I will remember him fondly. I will miss him, and while my heart breaks at his passing, I am so thankful to have known him. Fly high Steven.
